We started with chocolate cake and a couple of gifts.
Eventually we had an early birthday dinner at The Royal Scam. (Excellent food.)
From there we headed to the rooftop terrace at The Battle House. We spent a long time just exploring the hotel, keeping an ear out for the parades, and keeping an eye on the time because we had to get dressed for the ball.
Er… our attempted self-portrait in the mirror. Tori was begging to see my hair and dress so we got this for her.
Then we were off to the Pierrettes Ball. Our friend was the emblem this year and it was so much fun to watch her (and her escort, her husband) on the floor.
Emblem Donna getting flowers from her daughter.
Cutting the cake.
It was so fun to be with them on this special night for Donna. Loved it!
Happy Birthday, e. Hope you had a ball. 🙂
